Hi @csMom, Welcome to the Forum, who are the 2cs? Recurrent <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s can and do <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>grow</span> that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fast</span>! When you had the last lap, what did they classify the cysts as? Hemmrahgic? I had recurrent functional cysts pretty much from the time I hit puburty till after I had my kids! Sounds like you have had some so no relief there! They are the worst! We all get functional tiny cysts each month called follicles.
My Doctor said your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s won't <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>grow</span> so <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fast</span>, she asked me to do follow up ultro-sound in Sept. I had it done in Aug, because I felt some pain. Now they found I have 5cm complex on my right ovary. I am really worried. I am scared to have another laparotomy, I am worried to lose my ovary. I wonder why the cysts growed so fast from 1cm to 5cm in 5 months. What should I do? I have scar tissue on my abodomen, for the size of my cyst (over 5cm), can I ask doctor to do laparoscopy?
I am just tired of this affecting my daily life. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fast</span> do dermoids <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>grow</span>? I guess it depends on the person and the cyst? I just know I am hurting today like whatever is inside me is worse than ever!!!!
The mass (doctors use this interchangeably with tumour or cyst) may or may not have been there when you had your surgery. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s can <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>grow</span> quickly. Do take a look at the health pages associated wth this forum (at the top right) and there is info on cysts you may find helpful. Please do keep us posted on your progress. I just had a grapefruit sized cluster of cysts removed 5 weeks ago and feel so much better. Good luck!
My body type is inclined towards gaining weight in this area, but I am alarmed at <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> large my belly has become above the waist. Can the omentum grow back? Is it common to gain weight in this area? Is my liver at risk?
q=608 You will see that on the 2nd link it indicates that hypothyroidism can be a cause of ovarian <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s. When you go into that link there is also info on how iodine and cysts interrelate. Very interesting.

PLEASE give me some advice or some medical insight. AM out of the woods or not??? HELP!!
Dear ik, You have posted this same question on the ovarian cancer forum. The answer remains the same. I've copied it here for you again. Dear ik, I am confused by your question. Ovarian cysts are not ovarian cancer (A diagnosis of ovarian cancer would require a biopsy). Ovarian cysts are not a side effect of tamoxifen, however menstrual irregularities can be.
Fluid filled <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s (for example) can appear and grow very quickly. They are most often benign, but once they get too big, something needs to be done to remove them. Some woman are fortunate enough to just have them break down and resolve on their own without medical intervention. Sometimes BC pills help them to resolve. But the same solutions do not work equally for all women. Rarely does one know how long their cysts took to develop and many times they are discovered unexpectedly.
I'm on CD16 I went this morning for a follicle scan and I had two at 11mm one on each side. But I also had about 12 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s between the two ovaries. What could make them come back so <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fast</span>? just 5 weeks ago I didn't have any! I am on metformin 1500mg for the last year, I missed one dose last week so I could have a glass of wine but i really doubt one day could produce so many cysts.
cyst <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>grow</span> when they want and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> quick they want. So it is possible for it to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>grow</span> in 7weeks. Mine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>grow</span> everytime i ovulate, then they almost always rupture. Get in to see your doctor.
The majority of them are benign and even the small ones can cause loads of symptoms (or none at all). <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s CAN form rapidly especially the fluid filled ones. My own cyst was considerably larger on the day of surgery than on the day it was discovered (less than a month between events). We've heard of cysts as large as footballs and basketballs on this forum...all benign, but hard to imagine anything getting that big.
I can barely walk and can't lay down on my back because when I do there are stinging sensations in my pelvic region. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fast</span> do <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>grow</span>? Do complex <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>grow</span> faster than functional? Will this get bigger before Aug 2nd? how do I make sure I don't rupture this? how can I make this wait time more comfortable on myself? Baths? Massages? Is there anything besides taking these painkillers bc I am running out of them. Will my hospital give me a refill since I can't see a doctor until August?
what gets me is your doctor should know what those symptoms are for BOTH! and they BOTH can <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>grow</span> very <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fast</span>! Please seek help from a doctor who will listen and do whats best for you..take care and please let us know how you are..im sure youll be fine...just dont trust a doctor like that!!

My cyst was an endometrioma. These <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s, like dermoid <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s, can <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>grow</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fast</span>. Fortunately, both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s are most commonly benign. Basically, the symptoms for benign and for malignant ovarian masses (whether cyst or tumor) are the same, and the only way to determine if the mass is cancer or not is to surgically inspect it. My cyst was removed last December, and it was benign.
Hi there, After menopause, it is common to see small benign ovarian <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s. They are not related to ovulation and menstrual cycle as you are past that stage in your life. Some cysts may be related to a malignancy. The decision to remove the cyst and or ovary will depend on the particular person , the size of the cyst, whether it is changing, family history, symptoms, and so on. It is perfectly reasonable to remove this cyst at your age.

Ovarian cancer recurs often - so even if you do the 6 course treatment - you are not done - 3-6 month cat scans and blood tests to stay on top of it because ovarian is in the abdomen and can touch other organs. Good luck with your surgery.

Hello, Frequent urination is not a sign of ovarian <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s. Mostly they are symptomless But Ovarian <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s can, however, cause problems if they twist, bleed, or rupture. The pinching pain can be due to adhesion formations in the area where the surgery was done. If you are apprehensive regarding the status of your pregnancy you can get it checked. Most home pregnancy tests that check urine beta-HCG are sensitive to 20-25 mIU/ml of HCG.

The fact that you had an abnormal pap in addition to a large ovarian mass is more worrisome, but not conclusive for cancer. Ovarian cancer can spread to the cervix and cervical cancer can spread to the ovaries. But, an abnormal pap is very common and doesn't indicate cancer most of the time. Also, there are many women who have large ovarian masses that are benign. Most women diagnosed with ovarian cancer do not have abnormal paps, so that is not a red flag by itself.
Now I'm going through the same thing as far as the doctors appt goes.they are setting my appt off for months.They dnt really know <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> i feel knowing that my cyst can <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>grow</span> as fast as it wants too. last time it grew bigger than my ovary and stop my ovary from getting blood within three weeks. Now it has been two months since they told me that i have 2 cysts. So just hang n there I will try to do the same.
